the pain hit me like the shattering of a windsheild. they took away everything i had ever loved, the pain on her face was enough to kill me, my only daughter, my world and they had derived her of food and nutrients, stole her soul and it destroyed me knowing she had forgotten how to smile

Derived? Derivation. Deviation. Hesitation. Procrastination.
Yikes. This is harder than it looks.

Wretched wardrobes, derived from walnut and beech–no children disappearing, not today, but in ten years’ time, twelve, oh, the solidification of the quantum theory of developmental archaic chaos! We set the dolls inside, cornhusk and acorn and slightly damp dog tongue. Said the words. Lit the flame. And stepped back, shutting the doors to all three.
The open house would begin in a moment. A steal, this place, at one-forty. And fully furnished, of course.

I can’t say where I first derived the name Oxy for myself. It had really little relation to my relations. The Doxenbergs were never ones to hyphenate their names to a french d’Oxen burg.

When I open up my eyes
I find it’s you who is derived
From the hell hole you called me
And through faith you became happy
Without it, I was lost without you
Forever more unable to be your muse

He swirled the dark matter in the glass. “But what is it derived from?” he asked.
“It should seem as simple as any other beer,” she replied. “Barley, hops, yeast, water. It’s not as simple as that though. Whatever it is that truly makes this beer the most sought-after in the world, it’s something I have yet to identify.”

Most of what’s out there is a joke. But no one cares. If you don’t like it, you can change stations. And you know what? You’ll here the same crap on that station too. The illusion of choice, as they always say, is the right way to do business. Why innovate when you can just make it seem like you are?

from whence was your opinion derived? did you come up with such nonsense on your own or was it a random thought ?

“This all began somewhere on the other side of the globe,” she said, “deep in the Himalayas, at some mythical place called The Heart of the World.”
“All life is derived from there, in one way or another,” he said, nodding. “Our spirit. Our sense of strength and exploration. It all came from there.”
When you first start out the motives seem clear and you see no obstacles ahead. As you move on the achievements start to be measured against the distance traveled, the sense of worth becomes a figure derived from a self-imposed, arbitrary weighting of effort and success. And then the inner critic surfaces flogging you onwards. As the wish to improve performance increases the goal seems to shrink into the distance racing further ahead all the time, always just at the point where it might disappear over the horizon. Even running at full speed the passion and glory has left you behind struggling to catch up and now just overcoming inertia takes all your effort.

Coming out from under, she summoned all of her courage to step up the ladder. One rung at a time, she grew stronger, until she emerged. Her breath stuck in her throat as she pushed the cellar door open and

the old word derived as if it had arrived in the mail.
like blood derived in the heart.
like the nail
in my lungs
derived from your hammer.
and the knife in my back
derived from your hand.

I don’t know what to write about the word derived. I just had to look it up! Now I know what it means.

They spoke. They healed. They smiled.
Words were words. No less, no more.
No meanings were derived.

I watched the small corners of her mouth twist into an unsettling smile, derived and strained from the largest of grins. It seems as if this small gesture was her best try to project to me her happpines, but she hadn’t been in so while, she’d forgotten how.

What is derived?
Maybe I’ll look at the dictionary…
It means gain something.
